Hythe Garden Landscapes: Our Lives in Time’s Hands

Conceptual Gardens
A giant wave, hand-crafted from more than 500 pieces of steam-bent wood, is suspended as it crashes to the shore. It represents the passing of the moment, and is inspired by Shakespeare’s Sonnet 60, which speaks with melancholy sentiment that everything born will wither and perish.

The wave is set amid a landscape inspired by Dungeness on the Kent coastline. The planting reflects the natural landscape of the coast, with wild flowers among other edible species.
